Bell Labs researchers build camera with no lens

center_img More information: Lensless Imaging by Compressive Sensing, arXiv:1305.7181 [cs.CV] arxiv.org/abs/1305.7181AbstractIn this paper, we propose a lensless compressive imaging architecture. The architecture consists of two components, an aperture assembly and a sensor. No lens is used. The aperture assembly consists of a two dimensional array of aperture elements. The transmittance of each aperture element is independently controllable. The sensor is a single detection element. A compressive sensing matrix is implemented by adjusting the transmittance of the individual aperture elements according to the values of the sensing matrix. The proposed architecture is simple and reliable because no lens is used. The architecture can be used for capturing images of visible and other spectra such as infrared, or millimeter waves, in surveillance applications for detecting anomalies or extracting features such as speed of moving objects. Multiple sensors may be used with a single aperture assembly to capture multi-view images simultaneously. A prototype was built by using a LCD panel and a photoelectric sensor for capturing images of visible spectrum.via Arxiv Blog Journal information: arXiv © 2013 Phys.org The proposed architecture consists of two components: an aperture assembly and sensor of a single detection element. Credit: arXiv:1305.7181 [cs.CV] The process works because the image is built from light reflected off an object as measured from a slightly different perspective. Comparing the same view as seen through many different aperture array patterns allows for building a complete picture without the need for a lens.The upside to such a camera is its low cost—the demo made by the team at Bell Labs was constructed from off-the-shelf parts. Also, adding more sensors allows for creating multiple images simultaneously (three sensors allows for building three dimensional images). The downside to the process is that it takes much longer to take a picture than a lens based camera, and it only works for capturing stills.last_img read more

Apple Sells 10 Million iPhones in First Weekend

first_img Register Now » September 22, 2014 3 min read If it felt to you like everyone and their mother was buying an iPhone this weekend, you weren’t too far off from the truth.Today Apple announced that it sold more than 10 million new iPhones in its first three days of sales, a new record for the company.As has become typical, the debut of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus was marked by hardcore Apple fans standing in long lines outside of the company’s retail stores, some even camping out overnight.Related: The Wait for Apple’s iPhone 6 Smashes Record in ManhattanNot everyone was necessarily there to get the new iPhones for themselves, though. Many were likely lined up to get the new phones in order to sell them in markets where they’re not yet available, like China, where sellers can find customers eager and willing to pay more than double the retail price — especially for the much sought after gold edition. Last year Apple sold 9 million of its new phones in its first weekend, the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c, also a record for the Cupertino, Calif.-based technology giant at the time.Apple’s new sales record is roughly double what it announced back in 2012 with the launch of the iPhone 5. Back then, Apple had boasted sales figures that topped 5 million in the phone’s first three days and that it had sold out its supply chain.Related: Tech Glitches, Delivery Delays: Apple’s Latest Product Rollout Has Been a Mess So FarThat’s also been the case this year, even with twice as many phones sold. Apple CEO Tim Cook said the company could have sold even more new iPhones if it’d had a greater supply and that it’s working as quickly as possible to fill new orders.The new iPhone 6 with a 4.7” display and iPhone 6 Plus with a 5.5” screen are Apple’s biggest iPhones to date. The both include retina display, a faster processor and an NFC chip that will power its new Apple Pay feature that allows customers to make purchases at a point of sale straight from their iPhone.By comparison, Samsung, which typically doesn’t release sales numbers outside of South Korea, announced that it had sold 1 million Galaxy S5 phones in Germany. Reports say the company hopes to ship 35 million units by the end of the year.Related: Apple Pay May Be the Creative Leap That Outmaneuvers Samsung Free Webinar | Sept 5: Tips and Tools for Making Progress Toward Important Goals Attend this free webinar and learn how you can maximize efficiency while getting the most critical things done right.

Apple Has a New App to Teach Your Kids to Code These

first_img You’ve been saying it forever — you need to learn how to code. But with a busy schedule and a demanding work week, you just haven’t had the time or money.Like it or not, coding is becoming a prominent skill in the workplace, and it’s popping up on more and more of candidates’ resumes. To keep up with the competition, now’s the time to hit the keyboard.Luckily, you don’t have to be a genius at MIT to know your way around a computer. These free sites and programs can help you pick up the skill on your time:1. Swift PlaygroundsComing this fall, Apple’s iPad application teaches kids, and adults, how to code using Swift. The language is what the company’s developers use to program the majority of iOS apps created today. Users learn to code through a series of lessons and games.Related: Teach Yourself Coding on Your Own Time With These Resources2. Code Academy As one of the more popular and well known resources in the coding community, Code Academy offers a series of tips, how-tos and tutorials to get your creative coding juices flowing. Since its multiple resources and vast libraries are free — there’s no reason you couldn’t open an account and start learning how to code now.Related: Why I Learned to Code and How You Can in 3 Months3. Stack Overflow Though Stack Overflow doesn’t exactly provide tutorials or a step-by-step how-to guide, it’s a great resource for specific questions or examples. The community of developers and coders can also help you to find bugs in your code when you’re just not sure where you went wrong — or learn from other’s mistakes.4. Free Code Camp This free program offers a series of courses and tutorials for you to get started. Then — when you’re ready — will have you learn in real time by putting your knowledge to the test and assigning you projects and coding assignments for actual nonprofit companies. Don’t worry too much about messing up, the site has a community of more than 300,000 developers.5. LearnCode.Academy YouTube Channel If you’re a more visual person and video might prove to be more helpful, LearnCode.Academy might be your best bet. The YouTube Channel offers a plethora of different tutorials and sessions from javascript, HTML, CSS and more for the beginners — or the pros.  3 min read Free Webinar | Sept. 9: The Entrepreneur’s Playbook for Going Global June 14, 2016 Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own.
